Hoping For A Snowday



As January marks its passing I would like to nod my head to Jim Miller.
My friend of many years.
Goodnight you old bugger.

In other news. The wind is creeping in to the corners of Hallett’s Mountain and it’s a chill wind indeed unless you can scrabble room by the fire. As its my fire I have my feet up beside it. I have a glass of whisky and a strong coffee beside me on the left arm of the chair. To my right a bowl of Wine gums. There is also a rumour of chocolate but I am keeping that hidden unless She Of The Townhouse or The Boy twig.
We are hoping that the bad weather warnings for our area are realised and that by morning we shall find the rest of the world cut off by snow. At least to the degree that we wont have to go to work.
Fingers crossed.

Bloomin!
No sign of snow at all on the ground and just the briefest flurries as I set off for work this morning.
Grrrrrr

The last time this happened here(about eight years back), we were without electricity for 24 hours and had to all sleep in the living-room where the fire is.
Well, we didn't really have to, but it felt like a real adventure, being stranded, or pretending to be, in the middle of the snow.
I wish you snow then.

By the sound of the weather report, you just may have your wish! It was cyclonic weather where I am today!

You're in the best place to get any snow. I doubt if we'll get any down here.

Ooooh I love being cut off and not being able to get to work. I'm hoping for the same tonight and tomorrow, we need some REAL WINTER!

hmm, talking of SCRABBLEing a place by the fire *drums fingers*, it's YOUR GO!

They never seem to get the forecast right. It sounds very cozy there though. You can stay in and enjoy it over the weekend! We haven't gotten much snow this year at all.

So let's hope that doesn't mean you get snowed in at work.

We've got a foot of snow, schools are closed, but that doesn't let me off the hook...
